NEW VISA RULE TO BEN­E­FIT TRAN­SIT PAS­SEN­GERS

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > LOCAL -

In yet an­other an­nounce­ment for the ben­e­fit of tourists in the coun­try, Qatar Tourism Au­thor­ity (QTA), Qatar Airways (QA) and the Min­istry of In­te­rior (MoI) came up with a new visa rule last month. Pas­sen­gers with a min­i­mum tran­sit time of five hours at Ha­mad In­ter­na­tional Air­port (HIA) will be able to stay in Qatar for up to four days without ap­ply­ing for an en­try visa ahead of time.

“Whether trav­el­ling for busi­ness or leisure, we want to en­rich the jour­ney of all of our pas­sen­gers and are re­struc­tur­ing our fares to re­flect this ini­tia­tive and to pro­mote stopovers to trav­ellers,” said Qatar Airways' Group Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Ak­bar Al Baker in a press state­ment.

Ear­lier, in Au­gust this year, QA, QTA and VFS Global Group had signed a deal to in­crease the num­ber of visi­tors in the coun­try.
